Our professionals combine industry expertise with over 25 years of experience helping clients meet their customer and regulatory obligations. We take the time to understand your reporting needs and to work collaboratively with your team to guide you through the process. More than just issuing a report, we provide you with insights relevant to internal controls; processes and procedures; data management; and monitoring focused on risks and continuous improvement.

Which SOC is right for you?
This exam reports on internal controls over financial reporting and is ideal for:

  • Third-party administrators
  • E-commerce providers
  • Payroll administrators
  • Insurance organizations
  • Financial institutions
  • Other organizations that process data or provide services critical to their customer’s financial reporting

This exam reports on internal controls as they relate to the five Trust Service Principles (2016) including Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, and Privacy. SOC 2’s are ideal for:

  • SaaS, PaaS, DaaS organizations
  • Cloud providers
  • Managed service or application providers
  • System colocation providers
  • Other organizations that host or support customer data

SOC 2+
This is a SOC 2 exam that has been expanded to address compliance and best practice standards such as HIPAA, NIST, ISO 27000, etc.

This is similar to the SOC 2 exam, but the Auditor’s Report is based on management’s assertion that controls are in place and a public-facing report is made available for all users.

SOC Readiness Assessments
All SOC examination types require preparation and planning. Let our experts help you develop and implement controls to prepare for an upcoming SOC examination. Our team will walk you through the process, let you know what to expect, and help ensure a seamless transition—from preparing for an examination to successfully undergoing your first SOC examination.
